2011 came to an end and 2012 pushed forward full of promise and desire as i snored in my bed.

truly, i am not a night person and can only think of 2 or 3 times when i’ve rung in the new year.

instead, we curled up in the early evening to watch The Pink Panther movie (the first, released in 1963. do you remember?).

i concocted a great movie snack…

…and entertained an early evening visit from the sandman.
